"For a young man who had never left the country before, learning about the differences in educational systems between the United States and France was certainly an incentive to go abroad. Not only did I immerse myself in the learning approaches to French adolescents and the educational culture, I learned a lot about how I perceive myself as a secondary teacher in the United States. Using my experiences from France as well as those from Albion, I have become more confident in my own approaches to helping young students grow as free-thinking individuals."
